  • W-2 Replacement: Go to the employee self-service website.  Click on “W-2 reprint”.  Select your W-2 form year (2014) and select print or email your W-2.
  • 1042-S Replacement: You must complete the Request for Duplicate 1042-S form and email it to Payroll Services ( in Minneapolis.

If you are employed outside of UMD and have not received these documents yet, you should tell your employer and ask them to help you get a replacement.
